What our clients had to say about our work...
Mr. M of Emsworth, Hants


I would like to express my appreciation for the oak windows that were installed last Autumn. They have survived the winds and storms and still fit perfectly. Clearly they are a great asset to the house not only in good looks and quality, but also in the new level of comfort we enjoy in our house. Congratulations on a job well done. The stained glass window is also outstanding and is always commented on by visitors.

My personal thanks to Richard Smyth for the clearly outstanding level of fitting the windows. Both my wife and I were very impressed with the care and attention he gives to his work. It was clearly not an easy task.


Mr. & Mrs. F of Surrey


We would not consider having anyone other than Carpentry with Care carry out works for us.

They have worked on our properties in both SW1 and Surrey over the last 6 years and we have received nothing but exemplary results.

The wall is magnificent. Their attention to detail is second to none and it exceeds all expectations, as usual.

They are perfectionists and are trojan-like in their approach to all the jobs they have done for us, not stopping until they were satisfied with the perfect result.

Furthermore, they are extremely flexible and able to adapt to tricky and unexpected situations, even when they are sprung upon them at the last minute - sensitively dealing with our 'listed buildings' guidelines and working around the problem with professionalism, care and great attention to detail.

Their work has enhanced our beautiful old cottage and looks as if the wall has always been there, blending effortlessly in with the existing beams and other character features.

Richard Smythe of Carpentry with Care is not only a master craftsman but has a hugely artistic approach to his work. His quirky and clever eye brings character and personality to his work. That he thought to create a door that not only matched the other old doors in our cottage, he even made it look as if it had been fashioned in 1740! It perfectly blends in and has been cleverly crafted as if to be slightly imperfect. We love it.

This is real craftmenship - thank you all! We will continue to ask Carpentry with Care back time and time again.


Mrs. G of Windsor


I would like to take this opportunity of saying how pleased we are with the windows. The house is transformed!

Richard Smyth did an excellent job, worked very hard and was a pleasure to have around.


Mr. S of Iver


Carpentry with Care have recently completed a substantial amount of carpentry work at our house in Iver.

These works included referbishing a victorian 'cathedral' porch, building a new shelving unit, fitting new adjustable shelves into existing cupboards, easing and re-hanging internal and external doors and laying a wooden floor.

We are delighted with the quality and standard of Carpentry with Care's work and have found them to be trustworthy and reliable. I am sure all will find Carpentry with Care to be an honest and hardworking company.


Mrs. K of Alcester, Warks


This is just to say how pleased we were with the replacement door Richard Smyth fitted yesterday. Richard himself was a very pleasent and professional man.


Mr. S of London


Once again - exemplary work! The arched window installed by Richard Smyth was one of the smaller ones in the house, but proved to be one of the most difficult to install. A new subcill was needed and Richard worked until past eight in the evening to avoid potential problems with further bad weather might have caused.

Not only was the installation done to the very highest standard, but the house was left thoroughly tidy on completion.


Mr. & Mrs. J of Berkhamstead


This is to tell you how very pleased we are with our new windows and look forward to our next ones when they arrive.

Richard Smyth worked very efficiently throughout. He was prompt on arrival and worked all three days until the job was completed. We would be very happy to have him returm to fit our next batch.


Mrs. H of Wimbledon


I would like to record my appreciation of Richard Smyths expertise in the installation of my new sashes, including some special work needed to fit one sash into an old frame that is not square. It all went very smoothly and was puntilious about details. It is a pleasure to have the new windows.


Mr. & Mrs. M of Windsor


The windows have made a big difference to our lives - our bedroom used to be cold and draughty and even when we had the central heating on, it never seemed to get very warm in there. Out new windows have put a stop to that. There are no draughts now and the room is much warmer. This has already made out live much more comfortable - but more importantly, we are expecting our first baby any day now, the room is warm and cosy enough for it to sleep in there with us for the first few months of its life. And the new windows look beautiful too!

We would particularly like to thank Richard Smyth, who fitted the windows. He was absolutely wonderful. We couldnt believe how fast and hard he worked - he fitted three sash windows on his own in a single day - and how good his work was. Not only did he do a perfect job at an olympian pace, he was also utterly charming, unobtrusive and preofessional in his conduct. He is without doubt the nicest tradesperson to have ever worked on this flat, or anywhere else we have ever lived.He even helped us straighten our bedroom out afterwards and put our blinds back up again - something that wasnt part of the job he was being paid to do.

We would recommend him without hesitation to anyone.


Mr. R of London


I am writing to say that we are pleased with the installation of windows carried out at this house by Richard Smyth, and by his clearing up after his work was completed.


Mr. & Mrs. G of Richmond, Surrey


I am writing to say what a good job Richard Smyth made of fitting our new French windows last week.

Not only did he do a very good job, which has completely transformed the dining room, but also his whole manner was exteremely professional. He impressed us by his tidiness, concern for the security of our home and by his pleasent personality. He was very hard working and put in long hours over three days to get the job finished with minimum disruption to ourselves.

We are looking forward to completing the redecoration of the dining room so that we can show it off to our friends. The French windows will be the highlight!


Mr. K of Bracknell


Sharon and I we're so pleased with the work you did on our understairs cupboard that we wanted to thank you again for your excellent work. The consultation beforehand went beyond our expectations, we felt re-assured by your personable approach and felt confident that you could bring our idea to life.  

On the day you we're extremely considerate regarding every aspect of the project, from minimising any mess in the house by working outside to the quality of the craftsmanship on completion.  

Overall we're delighted with what you created, the quality of the finishing and overall standard have gone above and beyond what we were originally hoping - and you did it all to our budget which is often what it comes down to!  Thanks again, we'll be in touch soon regarding our Sash windows as discussed.


Mr. M of London


I am writing to let you know how very pleased I am with the sash window which was supplied and fitted recently at my home. The window itself is beautiful and has quite transformed both the room and the garden outside.

I would like you to know what a great job was done by Richard Smyth. At the end of two extremely hard days cutting the wall and fitting the window, he finished the job beautifully and cleaned up so thoroughly, you would have never known that the ground floor of the house had been engulfed in a cloud of plaster dust hours before! He clearly takes enormous pride in his work and the results show that very clearly.


Mr. S of London


I wanted to notify you how pleased I was with the installation and in particular the workmanship and professionalism. This was a fairly large job, which was completed single-handed both efficiently and speedily and to a very high standard.


Mrs. F of Windsor


Richard completed the fitting of replacement windows to our property in October. The windows have been fitted to a high standard and I am very pleased with the result. I should like to commend his attention to detail and obvious pride in doing such an excellent job.


Mr. & Mrs. C of Petersfield


In completing our order yesterday, Richard Smyth worked very long hours to finish in one day, minimising inconvenience to us, and his workmanship was excellent.


Mr. F of North Finchley


Thank you for completing the carpentry work for the inside of our new sash windows on time and to specification. The work is well done and the windows can now accommodate the vertical blinds in the way we wished. We are very pleased with the end result.


Mr. P of Farnborough


We invited Carpentry with Care to give us a quote for the replacement of our front door, other companies that we contacted had immediately suggested a new door was needed.

We were therefore pleasantly surprised when Carpentry with Care told us that the problem could be resolved without the need to replace the door. The job was carried out to an excellent standard and saved us hundreds of pounds.

Richard was also very friendly and approachable so I would have no hesitation in using him again.

See the case study


Mrs. H of Bracknell


Following on from the work that you did last week, I would just like to reiterate how pleased I am with it.  It looks like it was a labour of love looking at the detail that went into it making sure everything was lined up correctly, gaps EXACTLY the same all the way round.  I just hope that the painting of the doors etc that I have done, does your work justice.  The benefits it has created from what was wasted space into a closed space point of view is excellent for me.  It wont take long for me to fill all those shelves.....

Once again thank you so much for the work that you have done and be sure in knowing that I will be singing your praises to the neighbours.  Anne next door has already knocked saying she wants to have a look when I've finished painting.

Many thanks Richard.


WO2 (QMSI) L Smith - Corps of Royal Engineers


When I commissioned Richard Smyth at Carpentry with Care to create a stud partition on a large storeroom contained within barracks; his assessment of the work involved, the time to complete and overall costs were very precise and correct.

Richard is not only very professional and conscientious, he is also very enthusiastic about his work.

I can only highly recommend him with the project completed on time, to a high degree of quality workmanship and the detail of the finished product and would have no hesitation in recommending Richard and intend to approach him for other works on further projects within the next year.


Mrs. H of Surrey


Thank you very much for all your hard work.


Mr. P of West Dulwich


Following the installation last Thursday of new French doors at this address, I write first to say how very pleased I am with the outcome. The craftsmanship is first-rate.


Mr. W of West London


I just wanted to commend Carpentry with Care for the work they carried out just over a week ago ad Radford House, London. I was very pleased that they returned to finish the work during the weekend, since he was not able to get it all done on Friday.

Richard was very friendly and polite, and his work was definately of the high standard I expected.

Thank you for my 'new' windows!


Mrs. T of Thames Ditton


Last December we had two windows replaced with lovely box sash ones. We are delighted with them and commend Richard on his first class work!


Mr. M of Normandy, Guildford


Richard carried out the work skillfully, with care and attention to detail on our kitchen window. He managed to extract the old one frame and install the new one without causing the slightest damage to a tiled window sill and surround which actually abutted the frame.

His standards of finish and of making good were excellent. Not only did he clear up after the job was done, but he also caused the minimum of mess while it was going on. Should we ever have any further work done we should be pleased to see him back here again.
